The 90-minute boat tour with Kevin was great fun. He was very knowledgeable about the sights, was nice enough to take some pictures of us, and was able to answer lots of detailed questions. We definitely felt safe on the boat as well. Most importantly though, I'd like to commend The Yellow Boats on their customer service: We had trouble... More

What a fantastic trip, our guide was very knowledgeable and considerate. If you do anything in Dubai, this is a must.

This is a great intro into Dubai. The yellow boat company is extremely professional. Our skipper, Priyankara, was a great guide, who took the time to tell us special things. The views are marvelous. We love our pictures that he took. The kids enjoyed the ride. The length of time, 90 minutes, was perfect!

We were lucky to only share the trip with 1 other couple, but even if the boat was full this is a fantastic tour. We did the 90 minute trip which starts, after a safety briefing & skipper introduction, by passing through the marina, admiring all the tall building & construction sites, then powers out to the Palm, before heading...

Booked a trip with yellow boats day earlier for 75 minute trip from the eastern area of Marina along palm Jumeirah all the way to Burj al Arab. Ride was fun, with amazing views, captain Kevin was providing much info about all the things we've seen and making lots of brakes to take pictures. It is probably the best thing... More

Manoj, the skipper was very well informed and we were able to get really close to the Burj Al Arab. Some fab photo's and a good suntan for January. Would recommend this trip as it's also good value for... More

This saying doesn't hold good with Yellow Boats..... Amazing views of Dubai Iconic buildings like Hotel Atlantis, Burj Al Arab and Dubai Sky liners... and the Thrill continues to be the same for the 5th time .

This was a great boat trip. We found Yellow Boats easily, it's only a short walk from the tram stop 6, just as you reach the Marina. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes around if you get there early. They took my bag and stored it under a seat on the boat. The views were so good, as we... More

We booked trip online prior to arrival in Dubai. The boats catered for small groups. We found the commentary very informative and it was interesting sailing round the harbour. The speed was increased when we went into open water - very exhilarating. Very enjoyable trip- we would recommend it

Recently had my family over for a holiday and was recommended The Yellow Boats company by a friend who had done the same 90min tour. It was definitely one of the highlights of the holiday. We stopped 4 or 5 times in locations close to major landmarks and the captain provided us with lots if interesting information while we were... More
